Air Canada Reports September Traffic

Air Canada and Canadian Airlines flew 6 per
cent more revenue passenger miles (RPMs) in September 2000 than flown by the
two carriers in the same month of 1999, according to preliminary traffic
figures. Capacity increased by 5.9 per cent, resulting in a passenger load
factor of 73.4 per cent, compared with 73.3 per cent in September 1999.

According to Danielle Poudrette, Vice President, Marketing, “The combined
mainline load factors continue to improve on a year over year basis. The
stability resulting from the ratified Air Canada pilot agreement and the
greater efficiency resulting from the imminent integration of computer
reservations systems will restore customer confidence in our commitment to
offer a superior level of service.”
